Giant's Defy Advanced bicycles are designed to take you as far as you want to ride. A smooth feel, upright fit and stable handling all work together to make every mile easier. Broken pavement, potholes and even cobblestones were all front-and-center in the minds of the engineers when the Defy Advanced 2 was being designed. Giant's Advanced Composite material starts with T-700 raw carbon fiber for exceptional strength and very light weight. By using strategic layering and frame tube shaping, the Defy Advanced 2 brings a rock-solid strength during hard efforts, especially during uphill, out-of-the-saddle sprints. A PowerCore press-fit bottom bracket improves power transfer further. Tapered seat stays and a clever seat tube shape add compliance to help deal with potholes, choppy pavement and railway crossings. Giant's exclusive D-Fuse seatpost is certainly light, but also flexes over rough pavement to improve comfort further. A tapered OverDrive head tube anchors the frame's down tube, allowing the designers to reduce weight while not sacrificing overall frame strength. The Defy Composite 2's fork is also built from Advanced Composite material, adding lightness and comfort in equal measure.  The OverDrive steerer tube also prevents the fork blades from bowing under hard braking, enhancing control. Thru-axle hubs front and rear add an extra dash of torsional strength for precise handling during high-speed descents and turns.

A comfortable fit makes every mile better, and the Defy Advanced 2 boasts a tall head tube, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to fit more easily for multi-hour rides. A slightly longer wheelbase improves stability, reducing rider stress and tension when the tarmac goes from bad to worse. Instead of sharp-handling geometry found on a pro's road racing machine, the Defy Advanced 2's geometry is more like a Grand Touring car: Swift and light, but still manageable and comfortable.

 Shimano's recently redesigned 105 components are found throughout the drivetrain, including both derailleurs, the 50/34T compact crankset and 11-32T cassette. Boasting a wide gearing range for steep ascents and long service life, Shimano's 105 drivetrain performs best on challenging routes and centuries. Shimano also supplies the RS505 dual-control levers, bringing fingertip shifting and hydraulic control to the Defy Advanced 2. Hydraulic Shimano RS505 disc brakes are not only powerful and feature excellent lever feedback, but also perform in all conditions, rain or shine. Alloy PR-2 disc-specific wheels are shod with 700x25c P-SL1 tires for a smooth feel and easy acceleration. Giant's alloy Connect road handlebar and stem are matched with a Contact saddle to complete the cockpit.
